I use a squirt of antibacterial soap and a squirt of antibacterial lotion after first hand washing. It has made a world of difference.
Cerave or Gold Bond every night before bed. Gold Bond takes longer to soak in, so cotton gloves are useful if you don’t want to mess up the sheets.
Try Renew Intensive skin Therapy from the Melaleuca Company. Works for me.

First and foremost, hydrate from within! Make sure you are drinking the water you need and more. After every hand wash, moisturize with any light product you normally utilize. After showering and before you go to sleep, liberally use a heavy duty product like O’Keeffe’s, Aquaphor, or Coconut oil and cotton glove. Always works like a charm for me.
